PLEASE NOTE: Odometer in miles not kilometers.
Reluctantly it is time to say goodbye to this great little car. For almost five years this has been my every day drive and apart from a period with a faulty (now new) alternator it has never let me down. This car starts every time and drives really well, it is a pleasure to drive. It is a four speed with electronic overdrive in 3rd and 4th.
Shortly after I purchased the car the twin carbs were completely reconditioned and electronic ignition was put in.
Around two years ago the soft top was replaced with a British hood not an after market hood and it fits extremely well.
This car does have some surface rust and it has recently had some rust repair. There is crazing on the front right fender, the left fender has been repaired as shown in the photos. The front bumper will need re-chroming or replacing at some stage also.
The interior is black and is tidy, the upholstery is showing its age and is quite dry, there is a small tear on the drivers seat low down on the back rest.
This car is not a show room car and I would think a considerable investment would be needed to get it to that standard.
It is however a great little car and with regular maintenance and the occasion repair will continue to be a joy to drive.
Inspection and test drive is recommended.
I have indicated delivery to be pick-up only (preferred) this may be negotiated at time of sale, I will check out the cost of freight to areas around the country.
Will register for another 3mths.
